There’s no doubt that thousands of people undergo plastic surgery in NYC every year. More than 1 million people had plastic surgery in 2010, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. If you are thinking about cosmetic enhancement, consider the top 5 procedures I perform at my office:
#1. Breast Augmentation: Breast enlargement is by far one of the most popular surgeries I offer. This procedure enhances feminine curves and allows many women to feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies.
#2. Rhinoplasty: For facial enhancement, nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is a common choice. Rhinoplasty can slim, shorten and refine the nose for better facial symmetry and balance. An added benefit of this procedure is that it can also be used to improve breathing for some people.
#3. Abdominoplasty: Loose, hanging skin and fat around the abdomen is a big problem for many people. Tummy tuck surgery removes extra skin and creates a flat, firm torso. I often perform this procedure for men and women who have recently lost a lot of weight and for women who have had children.
#4. Fillers: Facial fillers are a great way to temporarily perk up your appearance without the downtime required for surgery. Dermal filler injectables such as Restylane® add volume and help fill in wrinkles and creases. They can also be used to plump up lips.
#5. BOTOX® Cosmetic: The FDA has approved BOTOX for the treatment of facial creases, and this popular procedure is commonly chosen to soften stubborn frown lines and crow”s feet. Results usually last 3 to 4 months, and patients can return to work immediately after the procedure.
